I personally think firing Greenberg was moronic to the highest degree and that hiring JJ was an abomination. If I had been on the Board of Visitors I would have moved to terminate Jim Weaver. I think Johnson should be replaced immediately following the end of this season.
I agree. If vt hires an ad quickly in January , the new guy got time to assess and determine direction..
If vcu and this game is any indicator , we may not see another win..it could be brutal..
It's not that you are ignorant, it's just that you know so much that isn't so.
IIRC, the actual timing of Ricky Stokes firing was due to a significant reduction in ticket sales. His record up to 2003 definitely had his seat getting warm, but I recall Weaver saying that reduction in basketball revenue is what tipped the scales in the firing decision as opposed to giving him "one more year".
No matter what happens the rest of the way this year, James Johnson will be the coach in 2014-2015. As for 2015-2016, that's a VERY different story... though I don't think the bar is that high for next season either.
As for who we get after Johnson, I think we need to at least wait and see who the next AD is. And see what the landscape looks like in 2 or 3 years.
